Go for performance. Leave the dust behind.

You know dust is a problem. It can sap your efficiency, create defects and rework, and steal the life from your abrasive. Once it's in the air, it can settle on your work surfaces in your shop and even creep into your office and waiting room. The best way to stop dust? The right combination of tools and abrasives let you capture it at the source.

Plus, they both pair effortlessly with your new or current dust extraction system — meaning no more fuss lining up hole patterns on your backup pad and making it easier than ever to leave compromise in the dust.
